Today we had a very definite list of places to stop and see: Higgins Beach, Two Light State Park, Fort Williams Park, Portland Head Light, Freeport, Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster Co., and L.L. Bean. That’s quite a lengthy list, but we made it to each place!

First stop: Higgins Beach. This is a little vacation town with a lovely beach.

Next stop: Two Light State Park. This park got its name from two lighthouses built in 1828. However, somehow we missed these lighthouses! I guess we were just too enamored with the gun battery built here to protect Portland Harbor during WW II. Here are some photos of the gun battery and the scenic views.

Zoom in to read some information.
I guess they used to give tours inside. I took this pic through the big, cross barred door way.
Took this pic through another gated door way.

Third stop: Fort Williams Park and Portland Head Light.

Finally, we are headed through Portland to Freeport for lunch and some shopping.

We ate lunch in South Freeport at this place. OMGosh! Best lobster roll ever! And the harbor views were nice.

We drove in to Freeport where you will find the L.L. Bean company. They have a huge retail store PLUS an outlet store in the outlet mall that is there right in the middle of the town. We shopped a little and then headed for home (a.k.a. the RV). It was a great day!

So, for now ….. “On the Road Again!”



We FINALLY made it to our one month stay in Maine! We are at Wassamki Springs Campground in Scarborough, Maine (just southwest of the city of Portland). It is a pretty nice park. It doesn’t have a swimming pool, but there is a lake with sand beaches in which one can swim. We have a spacious site, but the sites are of various sizes; some with shade, some without.

This is our site. Look at how much space is between us and the next RV to the left of our car!
There is also plenty of tent camping available.

There is plenty to do right here in the park: horseshoes, basketball, volleyball, pickle ball, a bonfire area, and swimming. There’s a banquet hall, a rec hall, and a small store (that has the best ice cream; you must try the flavor “Fly Fishing Fudge”!) close to the center of the park. They also cook a big breakfast at the banquet Hall on Sundays for a nominal fee (i.e.- two eggs, bacon, American potatoes, two pieces of toast, and two huge pancakes for just $7.50!).

Playground and sand volleyball.
Ok … If you are a professional pickle ball player, this court isn’t much. However, the kids around here love it and play a variety of their made up games on it!
Basketball court is just a half court.
Banquet Hall is the bigger building on the right. Rec Hall is on the left and the Camp Store is on the far left side of the Rec Hall building.

We have had the strangest weather since we arrived. The average temperature for this area at this time of year is 79 degrees. The first few days we were here, it was in the upper 80s and mid 90s. One day the high was 99! Then the rain moved in and the high for several days was in the low to upper 50s! One night it got down in the mid 40s. We even turned the heat on.🤣 It seemed like the rain lasted forever. We almost forgot what the sun looked liked. Anyway, today the sun is out, it is absolutely gorgeous, and the high is supposed to be 73 degrees.

On one of the really hot days, we decided to drive over to Kennebunkport. It is on the coast, so we thought it might be cooler there (you know, cool breezes off the ocean blowing inland). It was! When we left the RV, it was 92 degrees; when we got to the coast, it was 72 degrees.

It was a lovely day in Kennebunkport. The photos really don’t do it justice.

Can you imagine their gorgeous view!?
I love the coastlines of America. Each coastline has its own uniqueness!

Kennebunkport is known for many things, but it is most well known as the summer home of President George H. W. Bush and his lovely wife, Barbara. Mrs. Bush did a lot of voluntary work to help the community of Kennebunkport. Here are a few photos of their home on Walker’s Point.

When you can’t get very close, it helps to have a zoom lens.

We ate our first lobster roll in Kennebunkport. It was delicious! Once again, I forgot to take a pic of it. I guess I was really hungry. Afterwards, we walked around the town and went into several cute little shops. I hope we go back to Kennebunkport before we leave Maine.

So, for now ….. “On the Road Again!”
